We recently had a patio remodel project completed by AMK Hardscapes. Our initial meeting with AMK was with John Jaramillo. John was a pleasure to work with and was very thorough in providing us an all inclusive estimate and answering all our detailed questions. The project included the demo of a 28 year old redwood deck, demo of a 10’ X 20’ concrete patio, installation of a paver patio per our design including a circle kit, a curved sitting wall, steps out of the house, lower walkway pavers, steps to a lower walkway area and accent lighting. Once the demo was completed it was discovered the patio cover support posts were in poor condition. AMK was able to correct the problem. The construction foreman Alberto and his crew were great to work with, were very responsive to all our questions and allowed us to be completely involved with all phases of the project from start to finish. Mike Jaramillo, the owner, and John Jaramillo always made themselves available to answer questions and resolve issues. We are very pleased with the final patio and would definitely hire AMK again for any future paver installation projects we may have.

I spoke to my dad, Bud Fowler on Sunday and he mentioned that you were able to complete the clay paver project last Friday. He was very happy to have it done and was impressed that you had a whole crew there to do the work AND he couldn’t believe that he also got to meet the President and CEO of the company, which I presume is Mike.
I just wanted to send along my own thanks to you and to Mike for seeing this project through from the beginning through to its completion. From the first phone call, the initial meeting and to the work itself everything was handled by AMK in a professional manner and you made the process a smooth and simple one.
On behalf of my dad, Bud, thanks again.

Terrific Construction Product & Experienec!
Mike & AMK came to us highly recommended by neighbors, whose very attractive driveway/patio caught our eye while we were driving through our neighborhood! They were so pleased with the quality of AMK’s work and the professionalism of Mike and his crew. After talking with them, we called Mike the next day. He was so responsive and knowledgeable and straight-forward. He provided names and locations of his completed work and we visited those projects to see even further proof of his exceptional work. He listened to our desires, for a driveway, entryway, patio, and pathway at our residence. In a couple of days, Mike presented us with a plan and an estimate.
His crew started on the scheduled date and completed ahead of schedule, (even though we increased the scope of work during the project), and his estimated costs were exact. His crews were on time every day of the project, they were professional and personable, and they did superior work. Our expectations were very high, but the quality and the beauty of their work exceeded those expectations. During the course of the work, his crew supervisor recommended and made changes, that enhanced the functionality and esthetics of the completed project! We have had many passers-by stop, admire, and make complimentary comments on the workmanship of the crews and the quality of their work, and several have asked for AMK business cards. One neighbor even asked Mike to review their intended project and give them an estimate while our work was in progress. If you want a top quality, attractive project, and a superb construction experience make Mike and AMK your contractor!
I wanted to thank you again for the nice work by your company in tearing up our old patio and installing a beautiful new patio with pavers. We were very pleased with the timeliness of your crew. They worked very efficiently, were here when they said they would be and even finished the project earlier than expected. We are also grateful that you were so easy to work with and that you honored your promises. We have dealt with many contractors and felt we could really trust you and your recommendations. We have had many complements on our new patio and have referred you to a couple neighbors. We look forward to spending more time outdoors this summer.
Since we are so pleased with how things went, we are now ready to proceed to have our driveway, front step and sidewalk replaced as well as having a new sidewalk installed from the street to the front door. The quality of your workmanship and the materials you use will enhance the appearance of our home with increased street appeal. We are ready to proceed and look forward to working with you again.
Thank you for returning my phone calls and visits to our home.
We greatly appreciate the skill and level of professionalism you and your crew brought to our project. The driveway and front entry steps are exactly what we requested and give our home a fresh and ,we believe, more expensive appearance than the concrete we had. Curb appeal never hurts! Your owning the company and presence on-site were certainly closely related to the level of excellence of the project. It made all the difference to have you personally available to answer our questions and to stage the labor. Clearly you take pride in your company and have a well experienced crew.
Thank you for moving the water pipes – we were afraid we would have to foot an extra bill for that as it wasn't listed in the contract. Probably a bigger nationally owned outfit would have charged us but you honored your verbal contract. That speaks for itself. There is a lot to be said for small business owners who deal honestly with their customers.
If you ever need a referral for future jobs, feel free to have potential customers contact us. We are more than pleased with the timeliness and quality of the work you did for us and feel confident that you would deliver good value to future customers.
We would like to take a moment to thank Mike Jaramillo and his crew from AMK Hardscapes for the excellent work performed on installing our new paver driveway. The entire crew was very professional, on time every morning and worked diligently all day. Mike was there for any questions we had and was very knoweldgable abou twhat they wer doing and what they would do to finish the job to our expectations. We have had NUMEROUS compliments on our driveway and the work that was done. We would highly reccommend Mike and AMK Hardscapes to anyone looking to have paver/stone work professionally installed
The snow storm yesterday was a concern for me. Shovels? New walk? Drainage issues? It's great! It's smooth. The shovel doesn't "bite" at any of the joints! I'm happy! Your guys really did do a good job. We haven't gone to the movies yet. Thanks!
Dear AMK Hardscapes,
Thank you for your excellent work on our paver patio and pathway. You did an excellent job from start to finish listening to all the details that we wanted. Once the job started, every question was answered directly by the workers or by the owner, Mike Jaramillo. Every request we made, from swapping out some idividual pavers to replacing an edging between some landscape bark and stone, was handled without hesitation. We were also impressed with your thoroughness at the end of the job when you cleaned the street up to get rid of the leftover sand and road base residue. Thank you for your time and effor tin creating a wonderful outdoor space to be sued for years to come.
Last November we chose to replace our worn cement driveway. The project was scheduled almost immediately and during a very large snow storm. I was traveling 95% of the time that the project was being done. Unfortunately there was so much snow that it took a few weeks to actually see the finished product. I dount you have had a more diificult scenario to complete a job of this size. End result: we were most pleased with the final result and have had many compliments from our neighbors and guests.
We have reccommended many of these people to you and are pleased to know they too have been very satisfied with your work. We will continue to support you. The honesty, integrity and quality of your workmanship have been outstanding.
I am pleased that you are being justly rewarded for your business efforts, particularly in the very excellent job you did for us. Please feel free to use me as an unqualified reference.
Tom and I just want to thank you and your crew again for the fantastic job you did on our front walkway and area in front of the garage. The stone really looks great and adds a lot to the appearance of our home.
Your crew was so professional. They were on time, polite and friendly. We would certainly recommend your company to anyone interested in upgrading the look of their home.
Mike & AMK Hardscapes,
Just wanted to let people know how pleased we were with the work AMK did in replacing our drive way in Dec. 2013. They came in and removed and replaced our driveway and front walkway in a very efficient and professional way.
We were very pleased with the outcome, even to the point that the following May  we had them replaced and correct our back patio deck. Again his workers were very accommodating with our requests for various alterations.
We have and would continue to recommend AMK Hardscapes to others who are considering pavers for there driveways and patios.
We wanted to thank you and your crew for their hard work and dedication on getting our backyard retreat done on time even though Colorado weather was not cooperating as well!!!
Both you and your team were always ON TIME at the job site; this definitely is a very hard trait to find in contractors these days. We love the pavers, the sitting wall and the firepit you built for us, it has given our yard a whole new feeling.
Again thanks for a job well done!!
